COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 100 percent malted lager, “Leinie’s Classic” features Leinenkugel’s own unique blend of two-row and six-row malts and four varieties of hops. A blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts offer a complex flavor, with four different hops (Cluster, Cascade, Mt. Hood, and Hallertau) to balance the malts. Acknowledging their German heritage, Leinenkugel’s brewed Classic Amber in Reinheitsgebot tradition, where the only ingredients permitted are malts, water, hops, and yeast.

Bottle. Pours a light amber body with small to no head. Aroma is sweet malt with some hop. Taste is same, refreshing, and easy to drink, but with decent flavor.

Strykzone (5076) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Pours a light amber color with a yellow gold head that has a noisy but short life span. Nose is sweet malt, soap. Flavor is also soapy and is fairly well hopped with some caramel, spice, corn, and some funkiness. Metallic. Feel is thin but has some hoppy prickliness. I used to like everything this brew put out but they are even being surpassed by Michelob.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2009
The first reviews encouraged me. I sampled a pint at Old Chicago in Green Bay. I’m a Wisconsin native and would love to promote this beer. But there was something missing with this one. Fairly flat taste and carbonation. Not much of a bite, not much sweetness. A can of PBR would fulfill me as much as this one, There just isn’t much there,

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Golden in the glass with a white head that had a thin layer lasting. Skunked aroma with a backing of wheat and farmyard. The flavor found wheat and hints of nut. Light body with a light malt and nut aftertaste.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a pretty basic light amber orange with a finger of puffy off white head. Some metallic malt aroma and grassy hops with a sneaking hint of caramel. Taste is more pale malts, bits of caramel and standard lager like grassy hops.

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear dark amber color with medium frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium malt and hop aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable average brew

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Pretty blah. nutty aroma, and a lot of walnut in the flavor as well. That’s probably the only unique thing about this beer. Finishes just a bit bitter.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2009
beer pours more like a pale lager color than amber. 2 inch head crushes in an instant. Smells like funky malt and dirty sock. Tastes like ass. metallic aftertaste. Forgettable palte. pass on this one. This has got to be the sludge leftover in the brew kettles from when they brewed coors original that they just added water to/

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2009
12 oz. Clear, orange-amber with a quarter-inch of lasting foam. Aroma of rubber, grass and light honey. Flavor is unfortunately the same on the front, but is somewhat redeemed by some light toasted nut on the finish. Light-medium body is dryish and tingly.

pkbites (695) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pours a lovely golden copper with an off-white head that dies immediately! I had this on tap at the Olive Pit in the Walkers Point section of east-side Milwaukee. Metallic nose with "punch in the face" corn water. Funny soup bullion taste. The other posters here must have been drunker than me when they tasted this! 1.5 is a freaking gift, and I wouldn’t pay the $8 a six pack I’ve seen this priced at in the local stores! I’m damned sick of brewers passing crap like this off as if it’s some sort of micro-brew messiah juice. Enough, already!
